This hotel is in a prime location for enjoyment of the beach at Lido Key and the great shopping/restaurants at St. Armonds. Attentive, pleasant. responsive staff with the hotel in the midst of receiving upgrades. Gulf front rooms offer beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico.

This was our second time staying at this property. We had a gulf front King room both times. The gulf view is great. Convenient to walk across street to ocean. As guests we were able to rent umbrella and 2 chaise lounges on the beach for $20 from 9:30--4:30 each day. We would walk from beach back across street to hotel for lunch. Hotel is in walking distance to St. Armand's Circle with lots of shops and restaurants. We also found a couple of great restaurants a short drive away in Longboat Key. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was the room size. The first time we were on a higher floor about midway across the front of the hotel and we have no memory of that room being so small. This time we had a room at one end by the stairwell. (Room 300). It was like staying in a cabin on a cruise ship it was so small. If you bring your luggage in on a luggage rack and need to get on the other side of it you will have to crawl on the bed to get around it. If you sit on the toilet, be careful not to hit your head on the wall in front of you when you bend down. We love everything about this property except the size of the room. It did bother us enough that we probably will not stay there again.

This was our first visit since most of the rooms have been renovated and it was obvious. Nicely decorated and updated. Refrigerator was hidden in the furniture but adequate size for beverages and a little more. Beds/Pillows similar to other HIs and very comfortable. Electric outlets are sparse when looking to charge items and if you happen to use a sleep apnea machine. It would be nice if the Hotel at least had a microwave in a common area for those midnight snacks/popcorn. Staff is friendly. We were Gulf View, 5th Floor and did hear a little construction noise but it seemed to be on the other side of the Hotel. Will definitely be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sunpatch Great hotel, burly staff
Unbeatable location and nicely appointed hotel. Staff is
confrontational and brisk.....not the type of service you expect for the price of room.

We have stayed at this hotel several times, and it's always a great experience! Friendly staff, updated rooms, close to the beach and shopping - all walking distance! The front desk staff are always pleasant and helpful, and Marjorie in the bar always has a smile on her face with phenominal service! I would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pt306 Great place to relax
The beach was great and our room had just be renovated and was quite nice. There is still some renovation noise going on but it wasn't an inconvenience to us. The restaurant on the 7th floor is great for breakfast and the staff there couldn't have been nicer. Easy walk to St Armands Circle. Would certainly stay there again.
